Pumpkins Won't Grow

This is the second year I've tried to grow pumpkins, and no luck. The plants look healthy enough each year, they get large yellow flowers that bloom every morning, and I see bees in my yard. But for the second year in a row, not a single pumpkin has grown. I even tried planting a different variety of seed this year, and still no luck. Any ideas? But I doubt I'll try again next year. I'd rather use all that garden space for something I know will grow.

It sounds like a nutrition problem. I'm no pumpkin expert, but whenever I have a plant that looks lush and healthy but isn't producing, I suspect I have too much nitrogen in my soil.
